I love the dress because I get sort of a Jackie-O vibe from it: it's classy and has a classic style about it, but it's also different from any bridesmaid dress I've seen before. Ours will have purple underneath the black lace. We haven't made an executive decision about the belt yet: it comes with black, but we may switch it to purple. Each bridesmaid will also wear a vintage brooch on the belt. My rehearsal dinner dress has ivory lace over gold satin.
Here's a picture of Bre and I together (that's my ACTUAL dress!):
There was some worry that the two wouldn't complement each other, but I think we look great together!
I'm getting pretty psyched, but planning is winding down now that we've gotten so much done. To be honest, that's a little sad! Now we mostly have the execution to go, as well as some things I can't post online (bridesmaids' gifts, etc.). Don't be surprised if my entries continue to be few and far between.
